The 3D maze is ‘hanging’ in mid-air, high above the clouds! Move the Ball along the maze pathways and collect Pearls to replenish your Lives. But, you must avoid the Ball falling off and below the pathways and disappearing into the abyss: Game Over!
Beat the Best Score within the defined Life Span, Ball Speed, Life Dim Rate and Pearl Hide Duration per game.
8Maze starts at the easiest/slowest Level 1 (of 8). However, when you exit the game at a specific level, then the same level is presented when you re-launch the game again. You can also set a Game Launch Level in Settings (then exit game and re-launch).
8Maze levels have pre-defined Life Span, Ball Speed, Life Dim Rate & Pearl Hide Duration per level. In Settings: Custom Parameters, you can Set your own:
o Life Span (from 40 to 200, default 100), resets every time you collect a Pearl.
o Ball Speed (from 1 very slow to 120 very fast, default 60).
o Life Dim Rate (from 1 very slow to 50 very fast, default 25); how fast life span diminishes.
o Pearl Hide Duration (from 10 to 60 seconds); Once collected, the Pearl re-appears after ‘hiding’.
Custom Parameters will apply to all levels when a new level is launched (not the level displayed before the parameters are set). You can always return and Cancel the custom parameters, which will restore the defaults per level.
Game Music and Sound Effects have dedicated On/Off buttons at anytime during the game (bottom of screen buttons) and can also be set in Settings. When you tap/touch Settings icon while playing, all music and sounds will be set to Off.
Game Score increases +1 for each Pearl collected. The Life Span decrease -1 as time runs, regardless if the Ball is moving or not (Hint: Keep Moving!).
Game Over when Life Span = 0 or Ball falls off and down, down, down…
